Netherlands to get first US LNG cargo

http://www.lngworldnews.com/netherlands-to-get-first-us-lng-cargo/?utm_source=emark&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=daily-update-lng-world-news-2017-05-23&uid=53990

The Netherlands is to expected receive a cargo from Cheniere’s Sabine Pass LNG export terminal in Louisiana, the first ever US LNG cargo produced from shale gas to reach the country.

The 140,000-cbm Arctic Discoverer is scheduled to arrive at the Dutch Gate terminal in the port of Rotterdam around June 7, according to shipping data.

The vessel loaded a cargo at Sabine Pass and left the liquefaction facility on Sunday, the data shows.

LNG World News contacted Gate to comment on the shipment. We will update the article once we receive a response.

Many predicted a “flood” of U.S. LNG to Europe but only a small number of these cargoes landed in Europe, better said in the southern part of the continent.

Only Italy, Malta, Spain, Portugal and Turkey received Sabine Pass cargoes since February last year when the plant started shipping the fuel.

The bulk of these cargoes went to Latin America, Africa and Asia.

However, currently there are only three liquefaction trains in operation at the Sabine Pass facility and in the lower 48 states.

The U.S. is expected to become the world’s third-largest LNG supplier by 2020 with an export capacity of 60 million mt coming from five terminals located along the Gulf Coast.

Shelved plans for a €500m gas terminal on the Shannon have been revived as a result of Brexit, with PwC mandated to find a buyer to fund the huge Shannon LNG project at Balylongford, close to Tarbert.

The site has planning in place for a deep-water jetty, storage facilities for liquefied natural gas (LNG) and connections to the Irish national gas network.

The FG Gov’s Dirty Deal Behind Our #Fracking Ban

The FG Gov’s Dirty Deal Behind Our #Fracking Ban

“Ireland is an excellent location to receive global LNG supplies”
http://www.shannonlng.ie/

So here’s the dirty part of the deal that FG and their buddies in the oil and gas industry don’t want us to talk about.

We get an onshore ban on #fracking and in return we become a gateway terminal at Shannon for fracked gas from Trump’s U.S of A.

Trump About to Withdraw from Paris Agreement While Ireland Passes Fracking Ban

It is a historic day on which one nation passes a ban on onshore fracking, while another nation intends to walk away from the Paris climate agreement.

Paris agreement withdrawal makes U.S. a rogue nation

In her statement, Wenonah Hauter, executive director of Food & Water Watch and Food & Water Europe, roundly condemns Trumps withdrawal from the global climate agreement:

The Paris accord falls far short of the bold, decisive action needed to avert the most serious impacts of impending climate chaos – but it is certainly better than nothing. By choosing to walk away from the table, the United States effectively becomes a rogue nation when it comes to matters of climate change, human rights and global leadership in general. Mr. Trump’s foolish, belligerent decision to abdicate responsibility at the federal level now makes real action on climate at the state and local levels even more critical. For the sake of our planet and future generations, it is imperative that elected leaders at every rung of government – from the smallest town halls to the halls of Congress – do everything in their power to resist fossil fuels and help enable a clean energy revolution.” Continue reading
